Very friendly and chatty staff. Good selection of wines and a nice location for dinner or just drinks.

“A Nice Change”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Salsa Café is at the trendy Seaport area of Launceston. A really interesting menu with good choice. An extensive wine list too. The service is really friendly and helpful and staff were obliging with our requests for some variety outside of the menu offering. A bright and positive atmosphere with fair prices.

“Nice spot to sit and let the world go by”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

Had an enjoyable afternoon with wines by the glass (do try the Bream Creek Pinot Rose for 8$) and a few small Tapas for about 4$ each. Service is friendly, it`s a nice people watching spot and with a peaceful outdoor sitting area by the harbour. Just wanted to stay for a quick drink, but extended our stay for a few more. Definetely be back.

Lovely to read your review on Salsa Tapas Wine Bar as not only are we pleased you enjoyed your visit but also because you did exactly what tapas and our cafe is all about.......lingering over a period of time just enjoying the experience and watching the world go by. So nice to relax sometimes instead of being in the rush we all usually are! Thank you!

“0 out of 5”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

Went in this morning at 10:30am and was told "we've been busy ALL DAY and can't take anymore customers". Not sure how 10:30am is the same as "all day". There were clearly plenty of free tables inside. Great way to promote the tourism industry in Launceston guys!! Would rate them 0 out of 5 if I could.

You know what....I'm really sorry to read your review and usually I can be really sympathetic to our customers if something has not been to their liking however the big picture needs to be looked at in this instance. We were extremely busy on Sunday morning and unfortunately we did have to turn some people away. There may have been empty tables at the time you arrived however, these tables were for bookings that had been made in advance and I'm sure you would appreciate if you had a table booked, that it wasn't given away to someone else. We believe it is better to be honest with our customers than give them a seat and not be able to give them the service they deserve. I'm sorry if you were offended or if our staff did not explain the situation to you correctly and this I can address and improve on.
